The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Western -

A lobby as­so­ci­ated with Ju­bilee Party has crit­i­cised the Supreme Court rul­ing nul­li­fy­ing Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta’s vic­tory.

The Young Pro­fes­sion­als for UhuRuto yes­ter­day said the de­ci­sion was a pop­ulist judg­ment de­liv­ered with­out any ba­sis. The group said the judges made the rul­ing be­cause of pres­sure from NASA.

“There is no doubt the judges bought the threats by NASA and did not fac­tor the law and facts,” pa­tron Kefa Abongo said. He spoke in Bun­goma. The group, how­ever, said it wel­comes the rul­ing. “As a net­work that or­gan­ised Uhuru’s cam­paigns at the grass­roots, we know he has enor­mous sup­port,” Abongo said.
